Class 700s will enter traffic on the Great Northern this Autumn.
The introduction is planned in two stages. Initially two 12-car Class 700/1s will replace two sets of three four-car Class 365s on trains between Peterborough and London King’s Cross (the ‘365s’ run as 12-car formations).
Early next year eight eight-car Class 700/0s will replace ‘365s’ on the GN. Beyond that, details have yet to be confirmed.
